Such is the power of Sports and we must harness it to build Brand India. Supporting SSFL- Ahmedabad chapter is like a second homecoming. Uflex is already in the process of setting up at Sanand (Gujarat), first of its kind Aseptic Packaging plant for packing liquid products which is fully aligned with Government’s Make in India initiative. Supporting Sports endeavor in the State further doubles up our joy.”

I am thankful to Uflex for its continued support to the initiative that will empower the children and youth of the state much like it would bolster the sport itself. This will inspire the children to play the sport with truest sportsmanship and even opt it as a career.” said Mr. Siddhartha Upadhyay, Founder and Secretary General, STAIRS.
